Good for him. Stacy McCain, Payback Time: McCarthy Will Boot Infamous Jew-Hater From Committee
Sweet, sweet justice!
Incoming House Speaker Kevin McCarthy repeatedly promised over the past couple of years that, when the GOP regains control of the House, he would remove Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from their respective committees.Force them to play by their own rules.
It looks like he intends to follow through on that promise.
On Saturday, McCarthy spoke at a Republican Jewish Coalition event in Las Vegas, during which he announced he would follow through on his promise to boot the notorious anti-Semite, Rep. Omar, off the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
“I’m keeping that promise,” he told them.
. . .
Last year, House Democrats removed Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) from their committees. It was an unprecedented move, as the House majority had never before meddled with the minority party’s committee assignments.

“One thing I said from the very beginning, Eric Swalwell cannot get a security clearance in the public sector,” he said. “Why would we ever give him a security clearance and the secrets to America? So, I will not allow him to be on Intel.”
“You have Adam Schiff, who lied to the American public time and again – we will not allow him to be on the Intel Committee either,” he continued. “Look at Congresswoman Omar, her antisemitic comments that have gone forward. We’re not going to allow her to be on Foreign Affairs.”

On Oct. 8, 2010, Smith, then-Chief of the DOJ Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section at the time, called a meeting with former IRS official Lois Lerner “to discuss how the IRS could assist in the criminal enforcement of campaign-finance laws against politically active nonprofits,” according to testimony from Richard Pilger, then director of the section’s Election Crimes Branch and subordinate of Smith’s, to the Oversight Committee. Lerner eventually resigned from the IRS in 2015 following criticism of her targeting of conservative groups when denying or delaying tax-exempt status.

At Insty, PARTY OF YOUTH UPDATE:
Alert: Joe Biden Becomes First Octogenarian President in American
History. Sarah Arnold at Town Hall, Happy Birthday Mr. President, Now Pack Your Bags And Leave the White
House. Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media thinks
The Biden Crime Family's Defenders Are Getting Nervous. Althouse cites Jonathan Turley. "For years, the media has continued to report President Biden’s repeated
claim that 'I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business
"At the outset, the media only had to suspend any disbelief that the president could fly to China as Vice President with his son on Air Force 2 without discussing his planned business dealings on the trip. Of course, the emails on the laptop quickly refuted this claim. However, the media buried the laptop story before the election or pushed the false claim that it was fake Russian disinformation. President Biden’s denials continued even after an audiotape surfaced showing President Biden leaving a message for Hunter specifically discussing coverage of those dealings... Some of us have written for two years that Biden’s denial of knowledge is patently false.... Reporters have to insist that there was nothing to see or they have to admit to being part of the original deception... The media is now so heavily invested in the trick that they are sticking with the illusion even after 'the reveal.'..."'Bonchie' at Red State thinks The Establishment's Plan to Beat Trump Is Absolutely Hilarious. "I want you to forget about all the arguments over Trump’s viability in 2024. I could write a piece with pros and cons, backed by data, but that would be missing the point. Rather, the point here is that it doesn’t matter when Mike Pence and Larry Hogan are the establishment’s standard bearers. Heck, we might as well award Trump the nomination now if that’s the plan here."
